1Samuel 11
Amplified Bible
11AND NAHASH the Ammonite went up and besieged Jabesh-gilead; and all the men of Jabesh said to Nahash, Make a treaty with us, and we will serve you.H5176H5984H5927H2583H3003H1568H582H3003H559H5176H3772H1285H5647 2But Nahash the Ammonite told them, On this condition I will make a treaty with you, that I thrust out all your right eyes and thus lay disgrace on all Israel.H5176H5984H559H2063H3772H5365H3225H5869H7760H2781H3478 3The elders of Jabesh said to Nahash, Give us seven days' time, that we may send messengers through all the territory of Israel. Then, if there is no man to save us, we will come out to you.H2205H3003H559H7651H3117H7503H7971H4397H1366H3478H3467H3318 4Then messengers came to Gibeah of Saul and told the news in the ears of the people; and all the people wept aloud.H935H4397H1390H7586H1696H1697H241H5971H5971H5375H6963H1058 5Now Saul came out of the field after the oxen, and [he] said, What ails the people that they are weeping? And they told him the words of the men of Jabesh.H7586H935H310H1241H7704H7586H559H5971H1058H5608H1697H582H3003 6The Spirit of God came mightily upon Saul when he heard those tidings, and his anger was greatly kindled.H7307H430H6743H7586H8085H1697H639H2734H3966 7And he took a yoke of oxen and cut them in pieces and sent them throughout all the territory of Israel by the hands of messengers, saying, Whoever does not come forth after Saul and Samuel, so shall it be done to his oxen! And terror from the Lord fell on the people, and they came out with one consent.H3947H6776H1241H5408H7971H1366H3478H3027H4397H559H3318H310H7586H310H8050H6213H1241H6343H3068H5307H5971H3318H259H376 8And he numbered them at Bezek, and the Israelites were 300,000 and the men of Judah 30,000.H6485H966H1121H3478H7969H3967H505H376H3063H7970H505 9The messengers who came were told, Say to the men of Jabesh-gilead, Tomorrow, by the time the sun is hot, you shall have help. The messengers came and reported to the men of Jabesh, and they were glad.H559H4397H935H559H376H3003H1568H4279H8121H2527H8668H4397H935H5046H582H3003H8055 10So the men of Jabesh said to Nahash, Tomorrow we will come out to you, and you may do to us all that seems good to you.H582H3003H559H4279H3318H6213H5869H2896 11The next day Saul put the men in three companies; and they came into the midst of the enemy's camp in the [darkness of the] morning watch and slew the Ammonites until midday; and the survivors were scattered, so that no two of them remained together.H4283H7586H7760H5971H7969H7218H935H8432H4264H1242H821H5221H5983H2527H3117H7604H6327H8147H7604H3162 12The people said to Samuel, Who is he who said, Shall Saul reign over us? Bring the men, that we may put them to death.H5971H559H8050H559H7586H4427H5414H582H4191 13But Saul said, There shall not a man be put to death this day, for today the Lord has brought deliverance to Israel.H7586H559H376H4191H3117H3117H3068H6213H8668H3478 14Samuel said to the people, Come, let us go to Gilgal and there renew the kingdom.H559H8050H5971H3212H3212H1537H2318H4410 15All the people went to Gilgal and there they made Saul king before the Lord. And there they sacrificed peace offerings before the Lord, and there Saul and all the men of Israel rejoiced greatly.H5971H3212H1537H7586H4427H6440H3068H1537H2076H2077H8002H6440H3068H7586H582H3478H8055H3966
